From Wikipedia:

Wealthy Mississippian Big Daddy Pollitt celebrates his 65th birthday unaware that he's dying of cancer. Big Daddy's son Brick is in a childless marriage with Maggie, a beautiful woman who taunts Brick about his obsession with his deceased best friend. When the truth about Big Daddy's health is learned, Brick and his father resolve the issues that have created the tension between them.

Glace au praliné

Translation: [ Google | Babelfish ]

Categories: [ Cooking/Ice Cream ]


  • 250 mL lait
  • 3 oeufs
  • 50 g sucre
  • 250 mL crème fluide
  • 100g pralin mou


Faire crème anglaise (mélanger les oeufs entiers et le sucre, verser le lait chaud par dessus, faire épaissir à feu doux en remuant sans arrêt).

Delayer le pralin avec la crème anglaise chaude (verser la crème anglaise peu à peu sur le pralin et mélanger à chaque fois avant de rajouter de la crème). Lorsque le pralin est suffisamment dilué, verser le mélange dans le reste de la crème anglaise et mixer pour bien homogénéiser.

Ajouter ensuite la crème fluide et mélanger encore.

Laisser reposer au réfrigérateur pendant 12h, puis passer à la sorbetière.

Category Menu

Categories: [ Blog ]

I implemented menus for the category list, because it was uselessly long. Items that contain subitems are in bold font. Anyway, indenting subcategories with non-breakable spaces has been annoying me for a long time, but I never had a good reason to rewrite the categorytree module to get rid of them. It seems that making a menu was a good enough reason.

The mechanism for the menu (using purely CSS) is adapted from Eric Meyer's Pure CSS Menus. I have no idea if it works with IE (at the time Meyer implemented his menu in 2002, IE's CSS engine was too crappy to render them properly), but who cares about IE users anyway.
